Felon (and Wisconsin professor of criminology) encourages election fraud

I've written how vote fraud deniers like the Brennan Center for Justice or professors in academia enable voter fraud by their denials that it even exists.  Lead voter fraud denier Myrna Perez was recently tapped by the President to join the dysfunctional Election Assistance Commission.  In Wisconsin, criminology Professor Stephen Richards is alleged to have encouraged election fraud.  

In the tape, recorded during a criminal justice class, Richards can be heard encouraging a female student to sign the recall petition even though she thinks she lives outside the district, and instructing students to sign using their campus address instead of their parents’ home address.

Naturally Professor Richards was recorded encouraging students to sign petitions to recall Republican elected officials.   No surprise that Richards, the criminology professor, is a convicted felon.
